Dr. Akbar is a dental angel! Everything about her practice was so professional but so humble at the same time. It was my first time in the office and I felt right at home from the moment I walked in thedoor. I came to Dr. Akbar’s practice due to me having a bad dentist and I have found my dental home! I give all these ladies a 7 star rating!! I have no worries about putting my trust in this office what so ever. I came in for an emergency pulling on my upper wisdom teeth and Dr. Akbar was gentle the whole procedure. I loved them so much I’m going back Friday for my cleaning !!

Staff and doctor was AMAZING...I have lost my insurance due to my recent divorce and have been scrapped for money this last month, and I couldn’t afford how much it cost to get both of my wisdom teeth pulled...I couldn’t evenafford one, but the doctor and staffed helped me and we were able to get it figured out, and I am FOREVER thankful and grateful...

You feel pressured to get services done. They prepare bill so fast and want you to finish service, and you don't get time to check with insurance. Overwhelming.

I am one of those who rarely visits dentists because of a bad experience that I had once. This time I had to visit a dentist because my pain barrier was surpassed. I needed to extract a tooth that had amassive gym infection around. Overall, I am completely satisfied with my experience visiting Dr. Roya Akbar's clinic. I did not feel any pain and feel like I am treated as a very special client. All personal tried to make my experience as smooth as possible. I really appreciate this. On thing that could be better is overall waiting time before the procedure began. I was invited to the office right after I came and signed the documents. My x-rays were taken immediately. The doctor came in within 5-10 minutes, evaluated my mouth, saw what needs to be done, explained to me, and ... gone for another 2 hours! In the meantime, a beautiful lady from the front desk told me the procedure and fees that I should pay out of the pocket. I've spent remaining time looking into the ceiling, thinking about the situation in general, how I could prevent it, etc. Yeah, having a TV in the room would help to pass away this time. After 2 hours of my visit, I was given a pill that supposed to help me to relax. Then I was waiting for another hour. Good news, that the procedure itself went quite fast and professional: the doctor and her assistants always made sure that I feel comfortable and don't feel acute pain. In total, I have spent around 5 hours in the office, that is not bad at all taking into account that I made a reservation on Friday's evening and got a 10:30 AM appointment on Saturday next day. Summarizing: so far so good, we'll see how upcoming visits go.

It was a terrible experience! I would not recommend this dental office to anyone. I was informed that my insurance didn't cover my visit after I spent an hour in a room getting x-rays and being seen by the dentist. Whichthey wanted me to still pay out of pocket for my visit. They even wanted to charge me extra for my x-rays. I even called to check my insurance coverage before I went and was told I shouldn't have a problem with my insurance coverages. I was spoken to without any dignity. They spoke to me like I was 7 years old. I felt like they were only interested in taking my money. Awful experience...

Miles away from any other dentist's practice. The Dr, staff, and facilities are most exceptional! Dr Akbar is extremely talented and it is apparent in the low pain experienced during a long procedure and the quality of the end results

Like many people, I don't enjoy going to the dentist when my teeth aren't at their best. The office is comfortable and staff is extremely friendly. They have also done an excellent job explaining the required work and my insurance.

I loved how knowledgeable and kind she was considering I hadn't been to the dentist in years. I received a full examination of my teeth for free and was fully informed of my options for the route to take. All ofmy wisdom teeth had to be pulled out, I was nervous because I had never been sedated and never been under medication the way I had to be with this procedure. Anyways, she informed me of the risks if I didn't follow her instructions and the recovery time if I did, she was very respectful and kind in her approach. I appreciate her staff as well, right when I walked in the door before I could even say anything, one of the young ladies called me by name, being a first time patient there I have to admit I was impressed and felt appreciated. They also have little treats for you to take in the waiting area, some free chap stick and they give you a welcome kit on your way out the door. Another thing that i would like to point out is that Dr. Akbar gives you her cellphone number and as a new patient of hers i think that was awesome for me and is helping the healing process a lot better. Just to know i still have that ability to contact her after my procedure even after hours, it shows me that she really does care about my well being and she will be right there if i need her. The overall experience was great and I wouldn't have it any other way.
